Need a last minute snack idea for the super bowl, but short on time, or maybe ambition? I’m guilty of both this year! Well then give this little shortcut a try!
It’s still creative and cute, and will impress your guests, but you won’t have to go to much fuss at all. Yeah! That’s just my style!
What you need:
- Zip-Top Style Snack or Sandwich Baggies
- Party Snack Mix (I picked up a couple of bags at ALDI for $1.99 each, they were delicious and just like the name brand)
- Ribbon, String, Yarn, or Twine. Just something to tie the tags on.
- Card Stock & a Printer.
- Hole Punch & a Scissors.
Not that you even need directions for this, but let me provide them real quick anyway.
First I dumped two bags of the party mix into a big bowl.
Then I measured 1 cup of mix into each baggie. I should’ve used snack sized bags, but I didn’t have any on hand, so I used sandwich bags, zipped them, folded them in half, and put a small piece of tape on the back side to make it appear like it was totally intentional.
I made up these little tags (that you can download below), & cut them down to size with my favorite paper cutter (a scissors would absolutely work too).
Then I hole-punched them, and used the ribbon I had on hand to tie them onto the bags. To be sure they didn’t slip off I added another small piece of tape to hold the ribbon onto the bag. If you’re keeping them at your house on a platter or in a bowl, you could totally omit that last step. We were taking some of ours to a bake sale, so I wanted to be sure the tags stayed on during transporting.
There are two sets of tags, one with allergy information, and one without. Free for you to use for personal use only. If you’d like to share this idea, please link back to my post here. ENJOY!
